We have been a Thrive family from the beginning and have absolutely loved it! The classes are small and personal and Ms. Dani is a phenomenal teacher - very experienced and professional but immensely patient and kind with all the kids. She has created a truly nurturing and unthreatening environment for the kids to learn. I highly recommend the dance program at Thrive!
